Franciscan Physician Network Surgeon Honored with Healing Hands Award
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana - Tobi Reidy, DO, a surgeon with Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Colon & Rectal Specialists, has been honored with the quarterly Franciscan Health Healing Hands Award for the third quarter of 2017.
The Healing Hands award, currently offered through Franciscan Health in Central and Western Indiana, recognizes physicians for excellence in clinical skills, patient relations, research, stewardship and reflection of the hospital's ministry values and mission.
Several of Dr. Reidy's patients nominated her for the award. Among their comments:
- "At my office visits and hospital stays, she was always frank and informative with a caring attitude that always put me at ease. I can't imagine getting better care or going to a better doctor under these circumstances. I could go on, but to summarize, my life is better for having met Dr. Reidy and she will always have my gratitude."
- "She is a highly skilled surgeon and inspires confidence…"
- And another former patient wrote: "Her compassion for my problems started from the moment she walked in the door to my first exam. She listened to what I had to say, sympathized with me on a level I truly believe she could understand, answered all my questions and never seemed rushed to get to the next patient…"
Dr. Reidy is board-certified in surgery and a Fellow in the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. She earned her medical degree at Nova Southeastern University - College of Osteopathic Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and completed her surgical residency at The Jewish Hospital in Cincinnati. She gained fellowship training in colon and rectal surgery through IU at Indiana Colon & Rectal Specialists.
